Configuration wizard supports database transfer to multiple databases for Oracle

Use the Database Transfer configuration option using the configuration wizard to transfer your Oracle database to multiple databases or schemas. The multiple databases or schemas option can configure multiple databases with different data sources and different users per schema. You can also use the multiple database option to configure a single database with different data sources and different users.
  • Documentation resource: Database Management Systems; then go to Oracle: Database transfer > Oracle: Oracle worksheet: Transfer to multiple databases.

Improving page loading performance with asynchronous web content rendering

You can now increase page loading performance by separating portal page content delivery from web content rendering.

Integrating remote JSON data by using the Digital Data Connector

Starting with CF06, the HCL Digital Data Connector (DDC) for HCL Portal framework provides a generic JSON DDC plug-in that is ready to use for integrating external JSON data of your choice. You can use this plug-in to render external JSON data on your portal pages without having to write custom Java code.

Web Application Bridge support for SAML

Starting with CF06, the Web Application Bridge now supports single sign-on using Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML).

WSRP

You can now configure the WSRP Consumer to invalidate the remote session when a user explicitly logs out of the Consumer portal.

Updates to the Web Content Manager REST service

The Web Content Manager REST service now supports creating and updating authoring templates.

Updates to image and file elements

Image components and file components can now be selected when using image elements in content items and site areas:

Updates to custom search box in the portal theme

You can now redirect search requests issued by a custom search form to the Search Center.

OneUI is deprecated

OneUI styles were deprecated in the theme profiles of the default Portal 8.5 theme in this Combined Cumulative Fix. It simplifies theme development and CSS content by excluding OneUI styles from the default theme. Core components that are embedded in your customer theme, such as the Web Content Viewer or inline editing, do not depend on OneUI styles any more. If you have applications and web content that use OneUI styles, the content does not render with those styles after the update. However, existing themes and applications continue to work with the OneUI theme. Some static resources were replaced with new .css and .js files. You might also need to remove old social rendering libraries and deploy the new ones.

Document Services feeds for Federated Documents

Support for Document Service feeds for Federated Documents are now disabled by default, but can be enabled using the wp.federated.documents.document.services.enabled configuration setting.

The textbox.io feature for Ephox is now supported

The textbox.io feature for Ephox is now supported. For further information, and to obtain the application, visit the Ephox website.
